Hiring a personal trainer isn’t cheap, in fact you could be looking at paying thousands of pounds to get the results you want! Investing in a personal trainer could be one of the best decisions you make, but it can also be a total waste of money!
It’s no use thinking “oh I have a trainer now I’ll get results!”. The reality is that even the best personal trainer in the world can’t magically get the results for you, you have to put in the work yourself.
In this post i’m going to give you 3 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Your Personal Trainer so you get the best possible return on your investment…
#1 Ask and You Shall Receive…
Remeber you are investing lots of money and paying an expert to help guide you and to get results. I find the clients that get the best results are always asking questions…
“What’s the benefit to doing the exercise this way?”
“What muscle group does this work?”
“Is there anything else I can do to speed up my results?”
They are keen and enthusiastic and ask lots of questions because they genuinely want to learn and better themselves.
#2 Do Your Homework
Your coach should have written out a training plan and given you either a diet plan or some instructions on what to do with food outside of your sessions. Make-sure you do what your coach says! Otherwise you may as well poor your money down the drain!
Most people will typically train with their coach 1-3 hours per week. If all you do is your paid sessions but do nothing outside of them then you aren’t going to get great results.
Remeber there are 168 hours in the week, 3 hours of personal training is a very small fraction of that time. What you do the other 165 hours is what will determine the quality of results you get.
#3 Regular Communication
I have lots of clients who do exactly what I ask of them, these clients have often been training with me for a long period of time. Therefore they rarely communicate outside of sessions because they just get on with it!
If however you have just started out with your personal trainer then make-sure to keep in touch outside of sessions. Whether that’s asking your coach questions, or sending them pictures of your healthy food – it doesn’t matter. Communicate and let them know when things are going well and also when you need help – remember that we all have days when we lack motivation and need some extra support.
